Mango Tomato Salsa with Avocado

Tomatoes and avocados go together wonderfully, as is evident with many guacamole recipes. Avocado and mangoes also go well together – and when you combine all three, you end up with a wonderful thing indeed, at least when you turn it all into a salsa.

This mango tomato salsa is similar to many you will find served along with fish and other seafood in the Caribbean. While you’ll find variations on this salsa which include no hot peppers at all and others which are extremely spicy thanks to habanero or Scotch Bonnet peppers, this recipe takes a middle path, using just enough jalapeno pepper to give this recipe a kick.

The creaminess of the avocado is the perfect thing to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes, mango and lime juice in this mango tomato salsa recipe. Along with cilantro and onion, this is a perfectly balanced salsa, which is great not only with seafood, but also with tortilla chips and nearly any Mexican or Caribbean dish – and of course, anything else you like to have with salsa!

The ingredients just need to be gathered, chopped and combined to make this dish. The fresher and better quality your ingredients the better the finished salsa will be. Because this one is fruity because of the mango, creamy because of the avocado, and typically Mexican because of all the other ingredients in there, you will find all kinds of ways to serve this.

It goes with fish, seafood, pork, beef, chicken, egg dishes, or even as a side dish for pretty much anything. There are various textures and flavors going on here, but they will all come together really nicely, and the flavor of this will be well-balanced. This is the kind of dish you will want to make again and again.
